Palin’s line was absolutely correct, so you call her an imbecile. Hillary Clinton said “what difference does it make” about our dead ambassador and soldiers and you think she is the “most brilliant woman in the world”. You folks on the left have a strange grading system. I suppose you have no problem with her taking in Millions from foreign investors. Gosh , I wonder what she has promised them in return?

Oh, so you read the full policy? Funny, they wouldn’t let any of the public or Congress read it before they passed it. Explain this—If it is such a great thing, why would they not want the public to read and understand it first? When Obama and all lefties call something “neutral”, you know it is just the opposite. Since when has the left EVER wanted people on the right to be heard?

Gob bless you Mr. Shaw. My heart goes out to you over your tragic and senseless loss.

Cephisus- so in your opinion, what should he have done, say nothing? He is doing what he was sent there to do- speak out for the people he represents and honor the Constitution and the law
He does nothing, votes for the Speaker. They are worthless and weak. Gowdy will not tell the truth about Benghazi or any of the lawlessness in Washington. The Republicans and the Democrats are a right step then a left step toward Fascism. The Corporatism and their own largess is more important to the Republicans than America.

Verycobalt- Actually I know all about legacy admissions- I was an assistant director of admissions at a competitive liberal arts college for eight years. What is your experience? The Ivy’s are actually quite easy to get into as an undergrad if you have special connections. The Grad-level admissions is usually quite different, and are not nearly as likely to let anyone in. They can’t afford to lose their ranking.

In 50 years, “W” will be seen as having had weaknesses, but overall a good solid president who served honorably. Primarily because the current hard-left biased press will not be making the judgments. They will be able to see clearly that it was Bush that warned about the dangers of the ridiculous home loan situation that was pushed through by Democrats. Bush has been painted as a big spender, but I wonder how much of that spending was forced on him by the effects of needing to respond to 9-11. Don’t forget, that happened less than a year after he took office, and he was forced do develop entire programs that had not been considered before 9/11.

NOBODY gets into Harvard Business School without smarts. They wouldn’t be able to retain their ranking if they just let in the rich & famous.
Here is an interesting fact that “elbee2012″ forgot to mention- Bush’s first competitor for the White House was Gore, who flunked out of seminary school. Bush’s second run was against the Dem’s favorite Vietnam veteran John Kerry, who claims to have been a serious and mature student at Yale, while Bush had no qualms about saying he was not serious at Yale- Whoops, when compared the serious Kerry’s grades were worse than goof ball Bush. Yet the press called Bush stupid while Kerry and Gore were painted as serious and intelligent. Please explain elbee.

And yet you are okay with those you claim Obama was a Professor at the University of Chicago? A lecturer at best, and none of the hard charging press, have found a single student from any of his classes. You wonder if he was teaching about all that was wrong with the Constitution.

But that Navy was disbanded at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, and it was the piracy off the Barbary Coast (i.e. Muslims) that encouraged the re-funding
 February 20, 2015 at 8:33pm
All you need is one clear example: Obama didn’t lift a figure to free the Marine stuck in a Mexican prison, but is willing to trade five notorious terrorists for an obvious deserter, Burgdall.

J-Mo- Ever read Howad Zinn? Talk about lack of credibility

JamesCrow- Still waiting on your rebuttal to disprove Mr. Barton’s remarks. Waiting…..waiting….waiting…. You know, only on the left can you just state something as fact than not back it up with citations and proof. By the way, how’s that global warming coming along for you?
 February 20, 2015 at 8:17pm
Mr. Barton is Wrong! Muslims had an almost immediate impact on America. Without them, we would not have formed a true navy as soon as we did to fight those whacky Barbary pirates; although, I am not sure that is exactly what Obama had in mind
uh... the US NAVY was founded October 13 1775
26 years BEFORE the first Barbary war...
GO SCREW YOUSELF,. AND HITLER WOULD HAD WON WW2 IF SOME ONE WOULD HAD REMINDED HIM THAT ABOUT BONO PART.
The Koran tells the believer NOT to make true friends with infidels. So they are not inclined to be "woven into the fabric" of our culture.
I'm a US Navy Veteran (Lt.jg). I love reading history. I think you and AJC are sort of splitting hairs, in that you're both right.
As far as Barton goes, I think he's responding to the statement that Obama made that Islam "has been woven into our country". Of course, that is debatable. Yes, we did have the Barbary War (from which, by the way, we fought our first war on foreign soil and planted our flag and from which the Marine Corp Hymn's lyrics "to the shores of Tripoli" come from). Then there was the war for the Philippines liberation from Spain. We also were fighting Muslims in that war under General "Black Jack" Pershing. It seems that most of the interaction that the U.S. has had with Islam has been either in war or in terrorists attacks, such as 9/11, the Ft. Hood shootings and the Boston Bombings. If that is what Obama wants to consider "woven into our fabric", then so be it. But it's not the legacy I think he wants Americans to remember Islam by.
As for the slaves that were brought into the Americas, the vast majority (according to history and ships' manifests) were from the western coastal states of Africa, which were not Islamic at the time (few are now). Islam was mostly in northern Africa during the slave movement. Therefore, very few of the slaves were Muslim.

Wow, just WOW! Is that the best you have? After six plus years of blaming Bush for everything, you are now reflecting your issues on us? Unbelievable.
 February 17, 2015 at 9:48pm
Wow- and those 21 Christians who had their heads sliced off where just Egyptian “citizens” and the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. You would have no problem believing every word she said if she had blamed it on a Christian or, even worse, a right-wing Christian.
 February 17, 2015 at 9:44pm
Yep, He’s is yelling out Allahu Akbar. VeryCobalt- you would be the first to blame right-wingers for anything that happens, like mass shootings, only later to find out that the large majority are left leaning loners. Yet you seem so insistent on not condemning these poor downtrodden Islamic radicals. Why?
 February 17, 2015 at 9:39pm
A even when the “Eye Witness” confirmed?? When will you believe?
 February 17, 2015 at 9:27pm
Maggiesy- Please clearly explain to me what you define “extremist Christians” to be. And then please spell out the negative aspect of such extremists. Just calling a group extremist doesn’t really explain what you mean. Are they extreme because they believe in Christian ideals, such as love your neighbor and turn the other cheek, or are they extreme because they don’t agree with you? Just curious.

It seems we never learn. When Washington’s troops were stuck at Valley Forge, they could not get the politicians to provide food and clothing. All the politicians did was run away and wring their hands that Washington wasn’t doing enough to win the war (they were actually looking to replace him). That is Obama. He thinks he’s the only one smart enough to handle the situation, yet his response is always to blame someone else.
 February 13, 2015 at 8:44pm
And the reason we left Iraq in the hands of the terrorists is———Obama. Don’t blame Fox News.
